This is a question only you can answer. However, I will tell you that a well behaved dog makes for a happier dog and an happier dog owner. Your dog wants to please you! Without the proper training your dog will behave as they know how. It is about teaching your dog the rules of your house and what you expect from them. If your dog chews on the furniture or your shoes, jumps all over your guests, barks all the time, and/or you find yourself always yelling at your dog, then there is a very good chance that you will both benefit from my training programs.
I believe strongly in positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement simply means that we are giving the dog a reward, usually physical and verbal praise, that he/she is working for. Sometimes I use a toy as a motivation factor. My Tricks For Treats program is the only program I use a food reward. Unless a dog has been abused or is completely desocialized and afraid of humans will I not use food as a reward. Dogs are primarily pack animals. What I try to do in our program is establish you and your family members as pack leaders. A leader is not someone who gives bribes for proper responses to commands but rather someone who gives approval. In order to correct behavior problems your dog has to see you as a pack leader. I believe in fair and minimal discipline with lavish of physical and verbal praise to reward your dog. We want the dog to enjoy working for you and following your rules.
With kennel training programs you generally do not participate in the program. With group training programs your dog’s behavior problems are generally not addressed. Your dog is not going to be in the environment in which they live in with all of the distractions that surround your dog’s lifestyle. I feel it is very important for you and your dog to be comfortable in the surroundings in which you are trained. As your dogs owner you will need to know how to properly give the commands and know what to expect from your dog. My training programs will train you and your dog.
Each program is custom designed to meet you and your dogs specific needs. In order for me to determine the cost of your custom program I will need to speak with you first.
